Anna Freud is a world-leading mental health charity for children, young people and their families. Our mission is to close the gap in wellbeing and mental health by advancing, translating, delivering, and sharing the best science and practice with everyone who impacts the lives of children, young people and their families. More information about Anna Freud is available on our website:

We value diversity and aim to have diverse workforce that reflects the community and our service users, in line with our vision, values and inclusion commitments. We encourage applications from all sections of the community.

Observation seminars form an integral part to the MSc Early Child Development and Clinical Applications (MSc Early Dev). This two-year MSc programme provides a comprehensive understanding of early child development (prenatal to 5 years of age), as well as how the early years impact later development. Psychoanalytic thinking is the primary organising approach but other theoretical and clinical perspectives are embedded throughout the teaching. Students are able to apply this understanding in a two-year observation of a baby in their home. Observation seminars aid students’ understanding about children’s development and mental health while also helping students to develop observational skills necessary for psychotherapeutic and clinical work.

The Seminar Leader will be responsible for teaching and marking. Teaching will include running two weekly group seminars during which students take turns to present observations of an infant and family. The Seminar Leader will facilitate discussions and help students make links to psychoanalytic theories and consider the importance of observation skills for future clinical and research careers.
